Endometriosis

Parts of this were taken with permission from Essential Oils Overview and Reference Guide, published by: The Family Tree, 2008

Summary

see also Menstrual Problems

Endometrial tissue in the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus.  With the health concern endometriosis this same type of tissue is found outside of the uterus. This is most commonly near the uterus on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, outer surface of the uterus, ligaments that support the uterus, and other surfaces of the abdominal cavity. Very rarely it may be found in other parts of the body. 

This endometrial tissue outside the uterus responds to the menstrual cycle in some ways like the tissue within the uterus including thickening and bleeding.  This process then leads to problems of discomfort and pain with each menstrual cycle.

Suggested protocols:

Dr. David K. Hill in his presentation on Hormonal Balance gives this important observation, "Frankincense should also be considered for disorders of the uterus such as fibroid cysts, etc.  Use it to reduce existing abnormalities or consider it to prevent their formation.  Frankincense will also balance the endocrine system.  Use it by placing 2 or 3 drops under the tongue every night and every morning."

Pain and Cramps - here are protocols folks have found successful: 

  Apply 2 - 4 drops of (now A Women's Monthly Blend) or Clary Sage/Cypress topically to the abdomen.  Use a warm compress on abdomen after applying oils.

Take 8 -12 drops of Sandalwood internally in a capsule at the outset.  On the second day take 6 - 8 drops of Sandalwood in a capsule.

Also consider Basil, Clary Sage, Soothing Blend, Geranium or Peppermint applied topically to lower abdomen or lower back. For additional help cup & inhale and use a warm compress after applying oils. 
(note: Dr. Hill and many others point out that different oils work for different folks and there is usually a need to do some experimentation to determine what works best for each individual)

Experiences and Testimonials of others

Pam - A 16 year old relative has very painful menstrual cramps.  We think that she may have ovarian cysts and/or endometriosis.  Anything that may help her?

Lisa – I know personally someone that has used FM Assist and it helped a lot. Someone may have to play with the dose to find the exact match for their situation.  Also the MJ Assist is a formula for pain that may also help.  If you search the Internet for PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) you will find a lot of information this imbalance and that it may be linked to blood sugar abnormalities. My acquaintance has to limit her carbohydrates, which seems to help with less ovarian cysts, which cause the pain.

Tara - I have PCOS and under my doctor's care I take a prescription medication.  With this medication I still had bad cramps and I started using the MJ Assist.  This has helped me a lot but the results did not come instantly. I take 2 every 4 hours for my joyful 2-3 days of pain and I drink a lot of water. Soon I hope to add the LLW and experience the added help this may bring.

 

Pam - My 16 year old niece has crazy painful menstrual cramps.  We think that she may have ovarian cysts and/or endometriosis.  It runs in her family.  Should I just recommend Clary Sage?  Is there anything else I could be recommending?  Should I just have her apply the Clary Sage to her lower abdomen using some carrier oil?  

Lisa - I think the primary help for that is FM Assist.  I have used it with my daughter and it worked.  You may have to play with the dose to find the exact match.  Also the MJ Assist is for pain that may also work.  If you search the internet for PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) you will find a lot of information where they are finding this imbalance may be linked to blood sugar abnormalities. It’s worth a try.  Our daughter has to watch her carbohydrates, which seems to help with less ovarian cysts, which cause the pain.

Tara - I have PCOS and my doctor has put me on a low dosage of Metformin. I found out a lot about how my body should be working from reading about it. I still have bad cramps but the MJ Assist has helped me a lot but you can't just take one and expect results instantly. I have taken 2 every 4 hours for my joyful 2-3 days of pain and drink a lot of water.
